One of the main attributes of a successful MSP process is its openness and public outreach, in particular with local stakeholders and communities. In order to fulfil this attribute, a number of public outreach initiatives have been conducted during the length of the project. These included a public MSP consultation evening and a number of public presentations in Stanley that have provided opportunities to teach the community about MSP and its potential benefits. Face-to-face interviews conducted in camp for some sub-projects have provided an opportunity to talk to many people. Along with these presentations, a number of appearances in the local media (TV, radio and the Penguin News, the local newspapers) have also taken place.
